Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
First time rating and leaving a review. I personally don't mind when people tweak the recipe to their own liking, and I enjoy reading the reviews and using the suggestions I like. Here's a simple breakdown. Used Johnathon apples, since the orchard said they were the best for pie. They aren't as tart, but worked very well with this recipe. 2 Tblsp Flour, 1 tblsp corn starch (helps to thicken). 1 teaspoon Cinnamon (add to butter mixture). A few good shakes of nutmeg (add to butter mixture) 1 tblsp Vanilla (add to butter mixture) Used very little water, just a tablespoon or so. Used about 10 smallish apples, but we like a 'heaping' pie. Put apples in a bowl, and poured carmel sauce over, stir. Mound in the middle, because the apples break down. Brushed bottom of pie shell with egg white to eliminate soggy bottom. Baked pie on bottom shelf to help with soggy bottom crust. Did not lattice, put shell on top and cut a few slits in it. Baked 15 min at 425 - then approx 45 min at 350. ALWAYS bake a fruit pie with something underneath of it. I used an old cookie sheet with a sheet of foil. Fruit pies bubble. I turned off the stove and let the pie sit in there a bit longer. Let cool completely. Delish and perfect.
